Red Cross shelters available in case of power outages

Posted: Updated:

The Red Cross has shelters and volunteers on stand by in Kentucky.

An emergency response vehicle came to Evansville to pick up supplies to deliver to shelters in Kentucky.

The supplies included bottled water, food items, and other essentials.

Red Cross officials say if you lose power you should think about going to one of the shelters.

"We are in connection with the electric companies and if they should have a power outage for an extended period of time and know they are not going to get power on, we will be notified and that's when the shelters will be opened," said Amy Canterbury.

You can find an open Red Cross shelter by going to their website.
